Not a week after posting about Paris's beauty event Rives de la Beaute, we've found another reason to love Francophone beauty things... Jill Bucy spa in Seattle. Yes, you read that right... Seattle. This is one of the few places in America where 30-year old French beauty brand Biologique Recherche is available. I remember looking longingly at the Biologique Recherche site years ago when recruiting brands to the e-commerce site I had just launched. As far as I know, it's still not available in the UK, although it is in Germany, Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey and the Ukraine.
Get the same sort of treatments Parissiennes get at Jilly Bucy with her Classic French Facial, Advanced French Facial or 45-minute Vital Cleanse.
After living in Paris and frequenting the tiny, local spa on Rue de Montorgueil, I know what it is to have a French facial treatment (although, talking about other treatments, nothing yet compares to the manicures you can get at the cheapy places in the states). Efficient and resulted-oriented (there was no music, no faff... just pure beauty treatment)... and I miss it. Wouldn't it be grand to have such treatments feature in our regular beauty routines a la française?
Jill Bucy is located in the MarQueen Hotel (600 Queen Anne Avenue N., Seattle, WA 98109)
